Aboutboul, who plays scientist Dr. Pavel in the third of Christopher Nolan's Batman films, has been cast as Jabbar, a former Syrian intelligence officer wanted by both the CIA and the FBI. Jabbar, a vicious and very vengeful man, is angered when his abused wife runs away, and he is determined to make the man who helped her escape pay for his actions.
Fickas will portray Jack Dixon, a technology wiz whose skills include hacking computers, forging documents and re-routing bank accounts. Dixon is skittish, paranoid, and therefore very hesitant to work with Michael (Jeffrey Donovan). But he soon finds he has no other choice.
Both actors are set to appear in the 14th episode of Season 6. No airdate has been set.
Burn Notice, which shocked viewers last week with the murder of Michael's brother, Nate, airs Thursdays at 9/8c on USA.
